Betty runs for the office of President against Mr. Nobody. Both candidates state their platform through song and dance, referring to political issues of the time. Not long after this cartoon was released, Herbert Hoover was defeated by Franklin D. Roosevelt in the 1932 presidential election.
A cartoon from a by gone era but the themes are still relevant today. Goverments just want our vote then once in power we are treated like " Mr nobodys"

I toggled 4 stars because the video quality is so low, but still, the cartoon is great!! And, despite the fact that it talks about some old american political/historical issues, it does not look dated, at all; and being from another country myself, i can say it does not apply only to american politics but to quite some other coutries politics too, so you see there's sort of a universal quality to it. And not to say it's also hilarious.
It's a shame the video quality is so poor!
